Description


Behold the astonishing disappearing act of the Pogo Agie River as it vanishes into a large cavern and then reappears in a trout-filled pool known as the Rise. This trick of nature occurs at Sinks Canyon State Park in Lander, WY, and what better spot to observe the mystery than from one of the three yurts in the Popo Agie Campground. Nicely furnished with bunk beds, futon, ceiling fan, electrical outlet and dining table and chairs, the yurts can be rented during the reservation season (May 15-September 15) using the secure online system, and through the park the rest of the year. RV and tent sites are also available as walk-ins.

Visitors to Sinks Canyon State Park may encounter bighorn sheep, mule deer, golden eagles, porcupines and black bears. Learn more about the flora and fauna at the visitor's center, which has exhibits, viewing sites and information about wildlife and habitats. Although trout flourish in the Rise, no fishing is allowed there. Instead, you can feed them from the observation platform as they swim about. Hiking trails run through the diverse areas of Sinks Canyon State Park, which include forest and riverfront. Each year the park holds a First Day Hike and a Cave Exploration Adventure.

Enthusiastic rock climbers converge in and around Sinks Canyon State Park to conquer the rugged formations. In fact, the International Climbers' Festival meets in Lander each year. Among other local festivities are the Pioneer Days Rodeo and Parade, the Lander Brew Fast and the Wyoming State Winter Fair. Enjoy other Wyoming state attractions while visiting Sinks Canyon: the South Pass City State Historic Site, Boysen State Park and Hot Springs State Park
